Inrevium Virtex-5 LX330 Evaluation Platform

The inrevium TB-5V-LX330-EX, from Tokyo Electron Device Limited (TED), is an evaluation platform for ASIC prototyping. The inrevium TB-5V-LX330-EX is equipped with Virtex-5 FPGA LX330 and includes a high speed memory DDR/DDR2 SDRAM and major interfaces such as DVI, USB, and Ethernet as standard equipment. It can also support a wide variety of interfaces by connecting various daughter cards to the extended I/O. In addition, stacking multiple boards using this extended I/O will support a large-scale LSI development. The inrevium TB-5V-LX330-EX will ship in April of 2008 and available through TED’s worldwide distribution partners, HiTech Global Distribution, LLC and Nu Horizons Electronics Corp.
